Four of the referenda relate (o local government and the fifth is to decide whether the water system here will be flu- oridated. Considered the most important of the four government refer- terms ol altering the forn. of Nashua's Today's Chuckle People who live alone are much healthier than those with roommates. What's the use of having a pain if you can't tell somebody about it? ft Question 4. the charier change question. Sougll Among changes to be wrought If Question 4 is approved by a majority of voters are: Lengthening of a mayor's term in office from two years to four; broadening his appoint- ive power over key administra- tive officers; abolishing the elected board of assessors; es- tablishing a new fiscal year and tax collection system. The three other questions on referendum would allow absen- tee balloting in municipal elec- tions; Increase the mayor's an nual salary from to JlJ.Wfl and establish a eipense account for him; and change the composition of the aldermanlc finance committee so ward aldermen could serve on the committee. Voters will have to be In- formed on the ramifications of the first four questions before entering the polls because only the fluoridation question is spe- cifically worded as to Intent The fluoridation question orig- inated locally while the other four.questions were phrased at the state level and Incorporated Into bills authorizing the refer- enda. After the voter has finished choosing aspirants for office Nov. 4, ths first referendum question he will face at the bot- tom of his ballot will read: "Shall the provisions of an act entitled, 'An Act Relative to Absentee Voting in Municipal Elections in passed at the 1969 session of the legisla- ture, be Takes Effect la If a majority of voters mark "yes" on this question, any voter here who, because of physical disability or absence from the city, would be permit- ted to cast an absentee ballot in municipal elections, from IWO onward. Currently, absentee balloling Is permitted only In presidential elections. The state does not yet permit absentee balloting in elections for stale officers. Adoption of the act to allow voting in municipal elections was spearheaded by the Gate City Chapter of the National Association of the Physically Handicapped. Rep. Helen A. Barker (R- Ward J) filed the bill in the legislature on behalf of the as- sociation. The measure was aired at a public hearing in City Hall Feb. U. Although it received wide sup- port from legislators and the physically handicapped, the bilt encountered some opposition from check list Inspectors.

Sullivan said today he would reveal at the aldermanic meeting tomorrow night what his next step in the Neverett property-taking issue will be. He added that he is still conferring with his lawyer, Aaron A. Harkaway, over whether an appeal should be made on the unfavorable decision rendered by Superior Court Justice John W. King. Rejects Request In a decision issued late Fri- day, King rejected Sullivan's re- quest to have the court order the aldermen to put the issue on the Nov. 4 ballot.

He said the two will be returned sometime this week.

It is the general rule, King de- clared, that an initiative petition is applicable only to acts which are legislative in character and are not applicable to acts which deal with executive or admin- istrative matters. Ihe crucial test for determining that which is legislative and that which is administrative, he con- tinued, is whether the measure, resolution or ordinance under consideration Is one making law or one executing a law already in existence. The act of purchasing a parcel of real estate is no more legis- lative than the act of purchasing. a fire tngine or truck, King staled. To allow an initiative petition to be invoked to annul or delay executive of administrative ac- tion, he added, would tend to de- lay and, in some cases, to des- troy efficient municipal adminis- tration. King also found deficiencies in the wording of the initiative pe- tition which was drafted by Sul- livan and his secretary. According to the wording of the petition, he said, any public vote, if one had been allowed, would have been advisory rather than binding oa the aldermen. Light Agenda Seen Before Aldermen As they meet tomorrow night for their final session before the Nov. 4 municipal election, the aldermen will face a brief agenda. Under new business, five resolutions and two ordinances will be introduced. Only three ordinances, all per- taining to traffic regulation, will be returning from commit- te for final passage.

Disclose the finside By JOHN HARRIGAN The Memorial Hospital has added nuclear equipment to Its rapidly-growing facilities with the installation of a newly-de- veloped Isotope And diagnosis of skull mala- dies has; taken a step forward with the addition of a device that uses, sound waves to detect abnormalities in the brain. Aids Physicians Termed "a new diagnostic and therapeutic the nuclear equipment is un- der the jurisdiction of the De- partment of Radiology-. Accord- ing to medical personnel, the device allows doctors to "see" parts of the body which have in the past been difficult or im- possible to examine. For exaiople, if there is a a tumor, a radio- active isotope is injected into the patienVs blood, or in some instances he swallows it. The isotope is carried in a tracer dose specifically designed to be used by the part of the body to be studied. The radioactive material col- lects in the gland or organ for which It is destined and shows up on sophisticated radiation detection unit, called a scanner.' This method can be used to examine -'.the brain, thyroid gland, lungs, kidneys, liver, spleen and some bones. The part of the body to be studied shqws up in the scanner much like the dial of a watch appears in the dark. Studying this picturf, technicians can de- termine the precise location and size of a tumor or other abnor- mality. Previously, patients had to travel to Massachusetts or Man- chester to: receive this diagnos- tic treatment. The sound-wave device, is similar to the SONAR used to A 'Sound' Diagnosis? Patient Claire Chasse is used as a demonstrator by Louise Levesque who places sound "probes" to Miss Chasse's head. Operating on a system similar to a SONAR, the equipment can send waves through the body to diagnosis a variety of ailments.

ME1IBIB F.D.LG. U. S. "Awaits VC Release Of 3 POWs By RICHARD PILE SAIGON (AP) The U. S. Command today awaited further word from the Viet Cong on its plans for the release of three American soldiers. In a broadcast by its Liberation Radio Sunday night, the Viet Cong said it would free the three GIs as a dem- onstration of its "lenient and humane" policies. Identifies Men times today but did not say On the.basis of.Army serial where or wtajft, to, men VII me uaau numbers given in the broadcast, the U.S. Command identified the men as Spec. 4 Willie A. Walkins, of Sumter, S.C.; Pfc. James H. Strickland Jr., of Dunn, N.C.; and Pfc. Coy R. Tinsley, 22, of Cleveland, Tenn. All were members of the Ameri- cal Division. Tinsley is one cf 14 children of Mr. and Mrs. R, G. Tinsley of Cleveland, Tenn., and the sev- enth son to serve in the armed forces. He disappeared last March S flaring an action near Quang Ngai in the north- ern part of the country. Watkins and Strickland were reported missing in action Jan. 8 and Jan. 1968, in the Que Son valley. The Viet Cong broadcast indicated that both were members of A 3rd Battalion, 196th Light Infan- try Brigade. The company 19 months later temporarily re- fused an order to advance after five days of being thrown back. The Viet Cong's announce- ment was repeated several speculation it might involve an- other battlefield meeting be- tween American and Viet Cong officers, like the meeting last New Year's Day near the Cam- bodian border when three other GIs were handed over. The U.S. Command says the Viet Cong and the North Viet- namese have released a total of 18 American military personnel since February, 1967. The ene- my also has freed two American civilians and one German nurse, A number of other Americans have escaped from the. Viet Cong. In its latest weekly casualty summary last Thursday, the U.S. Command said Amer- ican military personnel were listed as missing or captured. Of these, 413 are known to be prisoners in North Vietnam, about 200 are missing in South Vietnam, and the O.S. Defense Department believes many of the rest are prisoners in ths North. Arabs Try to Ease Crisis in Lebanon By EUAS ANTAR BEIRUT (AP) Most of Le- banon's main cities relaxed to- day as Arab leaders pressed ef- forts to ease the crisis between the Lebanese army and the Pal- estinian guerrillas. Only the northern trouble spot of Tripoli remained under 24- hour curfew. Early reports to- day indicated there were no new incidents there, although the guerrillas and local leftists still hold a quarter known as the Old City. Ignore Curfew Beirut was under partial cur- few but many people ignored it- Tyre, Baalbek and Nabatiyeh were free of curfew for the first time in five days, and life was returning to normal. Egypt, Syria and Libya threatened action against the Beirut government unless it supports the guerrillas and their raids on Israel, but Cairo said a cease-fire and negotiations may be in the offing. The official Egyptian Middle East News Agency reported that Lebanon has agreed to send a delegation to Cairo for a meet- ing with leaders of the Palestini- an guerrillas, Arabs who claim they are refugees from Pales- tine and are demanding an end to Lebanese restrictions on their raids into Israel. The general trend is toward "freering" the Lebanese situa- tion in order to provide a breathing spell in which the feuding parties can work out a compromise, the semiofficial Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram said. The paper indicated it based its prediction of negotiations on the outcome of a mission by Dr. Hassan Sabri El Khoti, the per- sonal envoy of President Gamal Abdel Nasser. E! Kholi went to Jordan Sunday to see King Hus- sein, then met in Damascus with Syrian President Noured- din Atassi, guerrilla chief Yas- ser Arafat and Libyan Interior Minister Moussa Ahmed. Prospects for El Kholi to mediate appeared doubtful after the meeting in Damascus pro- duced a statement that Egypt, Syria and Libya "would not tolerate antiguerrilla action by any Arab country." Damascus Radio said ths conference agreed on the need to "guarantee complete free- dom for Palestinian guerrilla action against Israel from all Arab countries without excep- tion. While Arab leaders tried to cool off the conflict, guerrilla leaders in Lebanon sent mes- sages to thousands of Palestini- an refugees telling them the dis- pute had to be solved peace- fully. Palestinian sources said the command leaders also proposed a set of terms to Lebanese polit- ical and military leaders and or- dered their troops not to take any action that might worsen the inter-Arab conflict. Despite these efforts toward settlement, there were reports cf fresh clashs Sunday betwen th Lebanese army and guerril- las in Tripoli and several vil- lages. The death toll after five days of battle was at least 47 dead and scores wounded. Seventeen persons died in clashes Sunday.
